Promoting Student Health For Student Success

School nurse and student


President Column

Our new executive board was inducted in August and we are so honored to represent SNOM for the next 2 years. The board had transition time with the previous board and met as our new team to ground ourselves in the great work that SNOM has accomplished. Reviewing SNOMs mission, vision, organizational chart, previous documents, strategic plan, and bylaws.

As an all-volunteer organization, I am so proud to work with such dedicated professionals. Their commitment to this organization, our school nurse colleagues, and our students and families is truly appreciated. SNOM is honored to be working collaboratively with a team of school nurse leaders in MDH, MDE and ECSU to support school nurses across Minnesota and advocate for health equity for students. Great things are happening!

Our board is currently working on our bylaws and strategic plan in order to bring it to our membership at our annual fall conference November 11-12 - please join us! We are committed to communication with our membership, advocating for our students and nurses who care for them, connecting with nurses across the state, and hearing the voices of and involving school nurses in greater Minnesota. We are using SchoolNurseNet and social media to communicate with all members more often so you know what’s happening. We invite you to become more involved in SNOM if you are not currently by attending board meetings in person or virtually. We have several committees that will welcome you- check us out!
